April 30, 2019 – Day 6
Carry the Load continued its East Coast relay in New York City today. It was a special day for Beverly Wolfer who walked in honor of her brother, Stuart Wolfer. Stu’s friend, Glen Dare, also joined her on the four-mile walk.
Stu was assigned to the same unit as me in Iraq as part of the Multinational Security Transition Command – Iraq (MNSTC-I). He served on the Civilian Police Transition Team and was in charge of helping to stand up the Iraqi police force to take charge of their country. He died in an indirect fire incident while stationed in Baghdad at a FOB in the “Green Zone”. Stu was a giving person. While deployed to Iraq, he volunteered what little free time he had in helping out with the Boy Scouts in Iraq. He saw the importance of starting leadership at an early stage and the children were the future of Iraq. Stu was an honorable man, had a strong Jewish faith and he left behind a wife and three daughters while serving his country.
